Author to discuss peace in Israel, Palestine

The Toledo community will have the chance to learn about the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict from the perspective of a Jewish-American activist on Sunday, Oct. 21.


Dr. Mark Braverman, activist and author, will give a talk titled “The Path to Peace in Israel/Palestine: A Jewish-American’s Journey,” at 6 p.m. Sunday in the Richard & Jane McQuade Law Center Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public.

Braverman’s grandfather, a fifth-generation Palestinian Jew, emigrated from Jerusalem to the United States as a young man. Braverman was raised in the Jewish tradition and devoted himself full time to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after returning to Jerusalem in 2006 and witnessing the occupation of Palestine firsthand.

He is the author of Fatal Embrace: Christians, Jews, and the Search for Peace in the Holy Land (2010).

Braverman also is co-founder and executive director of Friends of Tent of Nations North America and part of such organizations as the Washington Interfaith Alliance for Middle East Peace and American Jews for a Just Peace.

After the discussion, refreshments will be served and Braverman will sign books.

The talk is co-hosted by UT Students for Justice in Palestine and the Northwest Ohio Peace Coalition.
